Informationen

Thanks to new developments in valve technique, the ranges of the original, natural brass instruments were expanded during the first half of the nineteenth century. The customary "brass harmonic sound", originally very simple, was now available at once for fully fledged solos for these instruments within the orchestral context. Classical and romantic composers eagerly expanded their expressive palettes with this new acquisition. Nonetheless, virtuosos of the up-and-coming generation playing these new instruments were relatively rare at first, despite the existence of many good, even prominent brass players. Composers thus wrote correspondingly few solo and chamber works in this genre. This situation underwent a fundamental change during the twentieth century. The trailblazing successes of soloists and ensembles encouraged the development of young talent. This resulted in an increasing expansion of the repertoire, tending away from the arrangement of popular works of
the baroque and classical eras and towards the composition of original works.

The present selection of compositions by John Cheetham, Eugène Bozza, Vincent Persichetti, Leonard Bernstein, Witold Lutoslawski, André Previn and Kerry Turner, performed by the Brass Quintet München offers an interesting and entertaining glimpse into the modern brass repertoire.

This first-class ensemble (Hannes Läubin, trumpet - Thomas Kiechle, trumpet - Luiz García, horn - Thomas Horch, trombone - Alexander von Puttkamer, tuba), made up of solo brass players from the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and other renowned German orchestras, guarantees musical enjoyment on the very highest level.

A very good brass quintet playing a solid program of modern works. I always appreciate it when a group can make complex music sound logical, make difficult parts interact neatly, make tense moments seem calm. Such is the case here, but one key is Munich Brass’s conservative tempos. Only rarely is there a sense of daring or propulsion. Tempos tend to settle back and become rather monotonous. Still, you have to admire the beautiful individual and group sound.

I am quite taken by the tuba playing of Alexander von Puttkamer – especially in the Bozza Sonatine, where I heard his lines as never before. The other members are trumpeters Hannes Läubin and Thomas Kiechle, horn player Luiz Garcia, and trombonist Thomas Horch.

The quintet medium has never quite established itself as the solid-state default for composers wishing to write for brass but it’s as close as it gets. The majority of works here were inspired by the great American brass tradition and more often than not they are still performed indigenously. So to hear the Munich Brass Quintet (principal players of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra) revel in the canny, incisive and easy vernacular of Cheetham, Previn and Bernstein is quite a revelation.

In this beautifully luminous surround-sound recording one can also appreciate the meticulous attention to dynamics, voicing and timbral depth which these refined German players bring to the probing discourse of Persichetti’s Parable and Kerry Turner’s Richochet from 1994. The latter is a delightful Texan frolic, about as far as you can get from a Bavarian musical landscape, but the musicians find compelling solutions and Turner writes brilliantly for brass, irrespective of dialect. An admirable addition for brass aficionados.

Das Münchner Brass Quintet spielt auf dieser CD nicht nur ausschließlich Originalkompositionen für Blechbläserquintett, es wählte auch sehr anspruchsvolle Stücke aus, wie sie nur ein Ensemble mit ausgesprochenen Virtuosen risikofrei und souverän aufführen kann. Die Münchner erkunden die Werke von Cheetham, Bernstein, Persichetti, Previn und Turner als wahre Kammermusiker detailfreudig und auf Wohlklang bedacht, mit sorgfältigster Phrasierung und raffinierten Nuancen. Keine der klippenreichen Partituren scheint ihnen auch nur die geringste Mühe zu machen, auch nicht jenes wunderbare Ricochet von Kerry Turner, dem Solohornisten des Philharmonischen Orchesters Luxemburg, dessen brillante Komposition das Programm wirkungsvoll beschließt.
